About this product Product Information For all the Christians facing conflict between Jesus' words and their own lives, for all the non-Christians who feel they rarely see Jesus' commands reflected in the choices of his followers, Red Letter Revolution is a blueprint for a new kind of Christianity, one consciously centered on the words of Jesus, the Bible's "red letters.
It is a call to a lifestyle that considers first and foremost Jesus' explicit, liberating message of sacrificial love. Shane and Tony candidly bring the words of Jesus to bear on contemporary issues of violence, community, Islam, hell, sexuality, civil disobedience, and twenty other critical topics for people of faith and conscience today. The resulting conversations reveal the striking truth that Christians guided unequivocally by the words of Jesus will frequently reach conclusions utterly contrary to those of mainstream evangelical Christianity.
I'm especially fond of the chapter on non-violence, and I could fill up a couple paragraphs with really good quotes from said chapter. In an age where many Christians have become pro-war, this is an especially important chapter that I easily recommend for any follower of Jesus. On that same note, "Dialogue on Missions" is an important chapter, too. Using the earthquake in Haiti as an example, Claiborne and Campolo brought up good points about ways missionaries may have hurt their economy more than than helped it, despite the good intentions that they really had. The chapter doesn't paint the two as anti-missionary if you read the book, you'll see that they are completely the opposite, honestly , but they see that the way we do missions needs to change.
To quote a Showbread song, " the world has become frustrated with a fake Jesus. Red Letter Revolution is an excellent book that focuses on living out what Jesus really said as well as examining things that He didn't say that we still practice and calls them into question.
It's challenging, convicting, and eye-opening. If you've ever read Jesus' words and wondered why some of them seem to be ignored in modern Christianity, or even if you're just curious about what sets the Red Letter Christians apart, this is the place to start.
